As a professional contractor, we’re often asked why the homeowner shouldn’t just go to their local big box store, buy what they need and do it themselves. Perhaps the biggest reason is warranty. When you self install, you may not get the full manufacturer’s warranty on the product . A manufacturer’s warranty requires proper installation. However, there are many other reasons that apply to most window, siding and roof replacement jobs.
Most homeowners don’t have the time to dedicate to do the job right and efficiently. Even if you have some previous construction skills, removing siding or a roof takes time and then installing it yourself or with a few friends may take days. A roofing crew is usually a team of up to ten people who know where to start and how to get the job done, often in just one day. This protects your home from the elements.
Tools & Equipment
No matter what you’re replacing, you’re going to have to remove it and dispose of it. Do you have the right tools to safely remove everything? New siding installation will require scaffolding. A new roof requires a nail gun. You’ll also need ladders tall enough to reach your home’s roof safely. How are you going to dispose of the waste? These things all take money. Once you consider at the time, tools and equipment you would need for window, siding and roof replacement, you might find that hiring a professional for any one of or all these jobs is well worth the money.
Quality Products and Installation
Rarely do window, siding and roofing companies sell their products directly to homeowners. They know that their reputation is dependent upon a quality installation. Your local contractor can purchase quality products and install them the way the manufacturer expects them to be installed in order to do the job for which they are intended.
